Just in time for Al Gore’s latest propaganda movie (the sequel to an ‘Inconvenient Truth’), comes news of an inconvenient discovery – more rigged climate data.

It was discovered that the Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s weather stations were programed to put a limit on how cold the temperatures could be recorded.

As soon as the machines were recalibrated, the recorded temperatures dropped so much, the government had to delete all the data.

When the rigged cards were in the system, the government reported that Australia was experiencing 100 years of soaring temperatures, but with the correct data, it actually show’s a slight decrease in temperature.

WUNT reports:

“Australian scientists at the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) ordered a review of temperature recording instruments after the government agency was caught tampering with temperature logs in several locations.

Agency officials admit that the problem with instruments recording low temperatures likely happened in several locations throughout Australia, but they refuse to admit to manipulating temperature readings. The BOM located missing logs in Goulburn and the Snow Mountains, both of which are in New South Wales.

Meteorologist Lance Pidgeon watched the 13 degrees Fahrenheit Goulburn recording from July 2 disappear from the bureau’s website. The temperature readings fluctuated briefly and then disappeared from the government’s website.

“The temperature dropped to minus 10 (13 degrees Fahrenheit), stayed there for some time and then it changed to minus 10.4 (14 degrees Fahrenheit) and then it disappeared,” Pidgeon said, adding that he notified scientist Jennifer Marohasy about the problem, who then brought the readings to the attention of the bureau.

The bureau would later restore the original 13 degrees Fahrenheit reading after a brief question and answer session with Marohasy.

The bureau’s quality ­control system, designed to filter out spurious low or high values was set at minus 10 minimum for Goulburn which is why the record automatically adjusted,” a bureau spokeswoman told reporters Monday.

BOM added that there are limits placed on how low temperatures could go in some very cold areas of the country.

Bureaus Chief Executive Andrew Johnson told Australian Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg that the failure to record the low temperatures at Goulburn in early July was due to faulty equipment.

A similar failure wiped out a reading of 13 degrees Fahrenheit at Thredbo Top on July 16, even though temperatures at that station have been recorded as low as 5.54 degrees Fahrenheit.”

Meanwhile, extreme environmentalists demand that President Trump kill U.S. jobs and sign onto the Paris Accords partially because of fake data like this.

And this is not the first time Australian meteorologists have been accused of cooking the books.

In 2014, The Australian reported:

Dr. Jennifer Marohasey claims the BOM’s adjusted temperature records are “propaganda” and not science, according to the Australian. Marohasey said she analyzed raw temperature data from places across Australia and compared them to BOM data.

The result: the BOM’s adjusted data creates an artificial warming trend. Marohasey said BOM adjustments changed Aussie temperature records from a slight cooling trend to one of “dramatic warming” over the past century.

BOM disagreed with Marohasey and told the Australian that the agency “used world’s best practice and a peer reviewed process to modify the physical temperature records that had been recorded at weather stations across the country.”

The process used by the BOM is called “homogenization” which corrects for anomalies in the raw temperature data. The agency said it was “very unlikely” that “data homogenisation impacted on the empirical outlooks.”

“All of these elements are subject to change over a period of 100 years, and such non-climate ­related changes need to be ­accounted for in the data for ­reliable analysis and monitoring of trends,” the BOM told the Australian.

But Marohasey said she found instances where the BOM made “no change in instrumentation or siting and no inconsistency with nearby stations” but added there was a “dramatic change in temperature trend towards warming after homogenisation.”

Why would government bureaucrats want to create the illusion that temperatures are skyrocketing?  Could it be because they wanted to bring back the $2 billion-a-year carbon tax they had imposed on Australian business because of “global warming?”

This week’s report is hurting their credibility though.

From The Australian:

“The BoM (Bureau of Meteorology) said it had taken immed­iate action to replace the Thredbo station (and several other stations) after concerns were raised that very low temperatures were not making it onto the official record.

Controversy has dogged the bureau’s automatic weather station network since Goulburn man Lance Pigeon saw a -10.4C reading on the BoM’s website on July 2 automatically adjust to -10C, then disappear.

“BoM initially claimed the adjustments were part of its quality control procedures. But bureau chief executive Andrew Johnson later told Environment Minister Josh­ Frydenberg that investigations had found a number of cold-weather stations were not “fit for purpose” and would be replaced.

“It has been reported online that electronic smart cards were allegedly fitted to the BoM’s automatic weather stations, which put a limit on how low temperatures could be recorded in official weather data.

“On her website yesterday, Dr Marohasy said it was not the recording­ devices that were at fault. “To be clear, the problem is not with the equipment; all that needs to be done is for the smart-card readers to be removed,” Dr Marohasy said.”
